do wrong

   (to someone)
   to copulate with other than your regular sexual partner
   Arguably such behaviour wrongs the transient as well as the permanent sexual partner:
    Then every two or three months he would do her wrong. Some girl would take an interest and Hobie would disappear in her dorm room often for days. (Turow, 1996)
